County announces overnight road closures April 12-14 for U.S. 60

U.S. Highway 60 east of Apache Junction and west of Superior in Pinal County (mileposts 208-217) will be narrowed to one lane at selected times April 12-14 to allow Arizona Department of Transportation crews to make improvements to the roadway.

The work is occurring from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily in 3-mile increments as follows:

•Westbound U.S. 60 is narrowed to one lane Tuesday, April 12-Thursday, April 14.

•The westbound U.S. 60 on- and off-ramps will be closed between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. during the work on Wednesday, April 13.

During the ramp closures, drivers will be detoured to Queen Valley Road (exit 214).

Message boards and traffic control devices will guide drivers through the area.

Drivers are reminded to share the road, be cautious, and slow down while traveling through the work zone.

ADOT works to inform the public about planned roadway restrictions, but there is a possibility that unscheduled closures or restrictions may occur. Weather can also affect a project schedule.
